   3.6.1. Civil flights
   All flights to or from KAIA are subject to Prior Permission Required (PPR) approval
   as stated in AIP Afghanistan
   Note: According to the provision of AIP Afghanistan, PPR slot times are valid for +/-30
   minutes only!

   3.6.2. ISAF Aircraft
   The Allied Movement Co-ordination Center (AMCC) based in Eindhoven (NL) co-
   ordinates all ISAF transport aircraft planning to arrive at and/or depart from, any
   location within the Kabul FIR.

   AMCC issues ‘Slot Times” for all ISAF transport aircraft planning to arrive at and/or
   depart from KAIA and all other ISAF locations within Kabul FIR.
   This applies to all ISAF/ISF military transport flights and ISAF/ISF military contracted
   civil operators.
   Intra-theatre (ITAS) flights are planned/tasked by ALCC – HQ ISAF (Airlift Coordination
   Center) based on LO’s (Liaison Officers) request. PPR’s / Airlift Task Mission documents
   shall be issued, accordingly.

   the aircraft’s behalf.
   Arriving aircraft will not be accepted to land without valid PPR or Air OPS room
   approval.
   Issuance of a slot time comprises the availability of the parking position; CATO services
   (passenger and cargo handling) and refueling, but only if the relevant fields in the approved
   PPR are filled with the proper information.

                             NATO /ISAF UNCLASSIFIED

                                    LOP V 9.6
   All flights are recommended to have sufficient fuel to meet their scheduled arrival and
   departure times. Aircrews should be prepared for minimal ground times. Aircrews need to
   consider adequate amount of fuel for potential ground/air delays, due to unforeseen events.
   Operators shall contact AMCC for any changes to PPR/slot times, and exceptionally
   KABUL AIR OPS room for short notice changes!
   Cancelled flights that are not reported are causing unnecessary activation of precious
   Search and Rescue resources. Operators violating these procedures may encounter
   denial of future requests for slot times on KAIA.
   For slot request procedures refer to AIP Afghanistan/Reference D.

   3.6.5. Aircraft parking at UK Embassy Apron 5 D & US Embassy Apron
        6
   Aircraft parking at those Aprons do not need a PPR. As a courtesy, managers of these
   Aprons are strongly recommended to inform and coordinate with the ISAF Air Ops Room
   about any flights, timings and requests.
   Note: All times used are Coordinated Universal Time (UTC).



3.7.      Refueling procedures at KAIA
KAIA does not hold fuel, available for all in-out coming traffic.
Only KAIA MIL A/C and MEDEVAC ASSETS are entitled to receive fuel, in function of
mission priority.
ISAF/ISF Call Signs are the only entitled to receive NATO contracted fuel, in respect of
restrictions in force, via official PPR request forms or ISAF tasking orders.
Fuel requests for all other operators are subject to Air Ops requested Logistic Group
Commander approval, in accordance with mission priorities and KAIA Days Of Service status
(DOS).
KAIA AIR OPS will assist other aircraft in coordinating refueling from civil contractors.
However, such requests remain a crew responsibility.
ISAF and KAIA shall not be hold responsible in any way for the quality of the fuel and
services offered by providers not contracted by NATO.

3.8.      Bird strike hazard
Due to intensive bird activity in the airport area between March and October, it is highly
recommended the avoidance of low-level tactical departures (below 30 ft AGL). Any
experienced incident is to be reported to FSO and TWR IAW KAIA Flight Safety Program

3.9.      Fire Crash Category
KAIA is Crash category 9 airport (according to ICAO Annex 14 Chapter 9 provisions). If the
airport category is downgraded, KAIA ATC will advise all traffic immediately regarding the
airport restrictions. It is the pilot in command sole responsibility to land or not at KAIA.

                  None NVG : 3000m visibility and clear of clouds
       It is, solely, the pilot’s responsibility to request SVFR.
       Kabul Tower shall request clearance delivery for a single, FW SVFR flight within
        Kabul CTR, at a time, unless otherwise coordinated with KRAPCON. (Subject to
        LOA).
       During SVFR operations, arriving and departing FW aircraft could expect long delays
        (up to 30 minutes). FW Aircrafts are not permitted to shut down engines on taxiways
        or at holding points unless an unambiguous clearance, to do so, has been given by
        ATC.

  3.10.2.           IFR Weather Minima
        3.10.2.1.   Arrivals:
        The IFR approach weather Minima are published in the valid National Geospatial-
        Intelligence Agency (NGA)IFR Approach Procedures for appropriate type of approach
        (ILS, VOR/DME, TACAN, ASR/PAR,RNAV/GPS). These procedures can be found in
        the Afghan AIP available on line on www.motca.gov.af /AIP / Available Instrument
        Approach Plates. Procedures can also be obtained at Kabul TWR or AIS office.
        3.10.2.2. Departures:
        The IFR departure minima are published in the valid NGA IFR Departure Procedures
        and comply with ICAO requirements. The template KABUL INTL (OAKB)” Take-off
        minimums”, in conjunction with the Para “KABUL INTL IFR Take-off minimums and
        Departure Procedures (Civil Users; FAR91)” details the required minimums for CIV
        and MIL operators and needs to be strictly adhered to.
        3.10.2.3.   Traffic reduction:
               3.10.2.3.1.1. If the visibility is below 1500m, the ATC supervisor may reduce
                   the traffic to 2 aircraft movements per 15’. If the visibility is less than
                   1000m, the ATC supervisor may suspend operations for safety reasons
               3.10.2.3.1.2.    Due to airspace congestion, BAGRAM Approach supervisor
                   may:
                          Reduce the departing traffic to 1 a/c movement every 5’
                          Hold on releases of any departing traffic from KAIA

   3.10.3.        Aircraft operations below minima
   If the weather condition is below minima, ATC TWR will close the airport for the effected
   traffic (FW, RW, arrival, departure).
   No any approach and landing clearance will be issued under minima.
   ATC will issue on control and ATIS frequency “Airport is closed due to weather condition
   expect holding or proceed to the alternate”
   Aircraft are not allowed to commence any approach.
   ATC TWR will advise COMKAIA as soon as practicable for the closure.
   If certain NATO (ISAF) missions (MEDEVAC, EVAC, RECCE etc.) require priority, due
   to operational reasons to operate at KAIA below weather minima, the initiator shall send
   their request to KAIA Air Ops regarding this mission.
   KAIA Air Ops will inform COM KAIA and ATC TWR.
   ATC TWR will:
       Kabul TWR shall not issue any clearances, or control instructions, only traffic
        information, weather information and RWY condition.

   ATC TWR should apply this rule with great caution when the weather has changed
   and aircraft are on final.

   TWR shall coordinate with RAPCON the aircraft to enter the RAPCON controlled
   airspace.


3.11.      Missed Approach Procedure

   3.11.1.        IFR:
   The NGA published (type of approach related) Missed Approach Procedure (MAP) is to be
   followed. The aircraft performing MAP is to be instructed to contact Kabul Approach as
   soon as possible. In the event of IFR cancellation by the pilot, coordination must be made
   with KABUL RAPCON and the a/c will proceed for the VFR traffic pattern and perform a
   full stop landing. The recommended phraseology to apply is: C/S, IFR flight cancelled, join
   left or right downwind RWY 29 or 11.

   3.11.2.        VFR:
   If the crew/TWR decides to execute GO AROUND, the aircraft is to join the traffic pattern
   according to ATC instructions. (Aircraft shall avoid over-flying Kabul City).
   Kabul Tower shall inform KRAPCON as soon as possible.

3.12.      Reduced Runway Separation
In general, clearance to land may be issued when the preceding landing aircraft has vacated the
runway or when that is a reasonable assurance that the RWY will be clear of traffic when the
landing aircraft is passing landing threshold.

   3.12.1.         A reduction of this separation is permitted if:
       VMC prevails.
       The braking action is not adversely affected by any runway contamination (e.g. slush,
        water, etc.).
       Traffic information of the preceding aircraft has been given to the succeeding
        aircraft and acknowledge by the pilot.
       Full length of the RWY is available (no displaced threshold, no arresting systems
        in place)



   3.12.2.         If the succeeding aircraft is a jet :
   RWY 29
   The preceding departing aircraft is airborne and has passed taxiway intersection C or the
   preceding landing aircraft has passed taxiway intersection C and is in motion.

   RWY 11
   The preceding departing aircraft is airborne and has passed taxiway intersection F or the
   preceding landing aircraft has passed taxiway intersection F and is in motion.

   3.12.3.         If the succeeding aircraft is a propeller-driven a/c:
   RWY 29
   The preceding departing aircraft is airborne and has passed taxiway intersection D or the
   preceding landing aircraft has passed taxiway intersection D and is in motion.

   RWY 11
   The preceding departing aircraft is airborne and has passed taxiway intersection E or the
   preceding landing aircraft has passed taxiway intersection E and is in motion.

3.13.      Radio Failure Procedures
The ICAO Standard Radio Communication Failure (RCF) procedure is to be followed.

All traffic RW/FW in case of radio failure and intended to join the traffic patterns shall do it a
45 degrees angle to the downwind leg. In radio failure situations the traffic SHALL NEVER
cross from North to South or vise versus over the airport neither the final approach sectors,
interfering with possible traffic.


   3.13.1.         Aircraft in flight
   Aircraft/ATC should try to establish radio contact via 121.50 Mhz or 243.00 Mhz. If that
   was not possible to establish radio contact through this mean, and if there is radar
   capability from ATC (either KAC or KTWR using the”bright”) In order to identify if the
   pilot is receiving any radio transmissions from ATC, controllers shall ask, and pilots shall
   expect to be asked to:

   1. Acknowledge by IDENT, or
   2. Change Squawk
   If there is no radar capability, controllers shall expect form the pilots, and they shall do so:
   Light A/C: low approach over the RWY at or above 500 feet AGL, look for TWR light
   gun signal and “rock wings” when passing in front of TWR, to advising RADIO
   FAILURE. Then join the TWR (south) traffic pattern. When turning base leg or short final
   look for light gun signal for full stop landing or go around. Vacate RWY in use after
   landing at the TWY A/J or G (depending on RWY in use). Do not enter TWY B/H without
   ATC clearance via radio frequency, light gun signal or Follow-me guidance.
   Medium/Heavy A/C: low approach over the RWY at or above 500 feet AGL, look for
   TWR light gun signal and “flash landing lights” advising RADIO FAILURE. Then join the
   TWR (south) traffic pattern. When turning base leg or short final look for light gun signal
   for full stop landing or go around. Vacate RWY in use after landing at the TWY A/J or G
   (depending on RWY in use). Do not enter TWY B/H without ATC clearance via radio
   frequency, light gun signal or Follow-me guidance.
   For Helicopters: low approach over the TWY “B”/”H” at or above 500 feet AGL, and
   “rock wings” when passing in front of TWR, to advising the RADIO FAILURE and look
   for light gun signal. Then join the TWR (south/north) traffic pattern. When turning base leg
   or short final TWY B/H look for light gun signal for full stop landing or go around. The
   landing shall be on TWY “B”/”H” abeam their parking ramp and vacate TWY “B”/”H”
   fastest and safest as possible.
   In the probability of the communications failure is due to the mountainous terrain, the
   controllers shall try to relay information trough other aircraft flying in a coverage area of
   the aircraft behind mountains or flying too low. Pilots shall use the same vice versus
   procedure to acknowledge information to the ATC.


   3.13.2.        Aircraft on the ground
   A/C taxiing for departure: Stop, hold current position on the taxiway, expect to return to
   parking position, keep engines running, and wait for Follow-Me vehicle guidance or Light-
   Gun signal to vacate the area.

   A/C lined-up for departure: Taxi down the runway, vacate at the earliest possible, then
   stop on the taxiway, and wait for Follow-Me vehicle guidance or Light-Gun signal. Do not
   enter TWY B/H without ATC clearance via radio frequency, light gun signal or Follow-me
   guidance.



3.14.     External Jettison / Aircraft Abandonment
There are no established External Stores Jettison or Aircraft Abandonment locations for Kabul
Airspace.
Controlled Jettison shall be performed in BAGRAM Radar’s Airspace as instructed below:
aircraft shall proceed to BGM 130/04 NM (Radial/Distance), then fly parallel to RWY heading

4 Ground Operations

  4.1.       Taxi Procedures
  All aircraft shall adhere to ATC and Follow-Me/marshaller taxiing instructions.
  All ISAF and military aircraft, including commercial operators deployed by ISAF TCN’s, shall
  expect Follow-Me, or Marshaller guidance for taxi to parking to the military aprons and
  taxiways (APRON 1, 2, 7, 8, Helipad 1,2,3). TWR shall coordinate ground movement with Air
  Ops and instruct taxiing aircraft to hold position, for hand over, to Follow-me car.
  Aircraft/helicopters are not authorized to enter APRON 1, 2, 7 or 8 (for parking) without
  Follow-Me or Marshaller guidance.
  The TWY B from intersection D to G is closed for all helicopter take-offs, landings and
  hovering, except Helistrip B1 and B2
  Helicopter take-off and landing is permitted from all Helistrips, TWY F and from the TWY B
  segments D–A.
  No air taxi is allowed on the TWY B between intersections D and F. Only KAIA based
  helicopters and those who cannot perform ground taxi, are allowed to air taxi on the main
  taxiway between intersections D and F.
  APRON 1, 2 ,7 and 8 are closed for all landings, take-offs, hovering, and air taxi of helicopters,
  unless exempted by coordination with Air Ops.
  Helicopters armed with external stores, shall be parked only on APRON 7 Facing north.
  Jet aircraft, taxiing to runway 29 via taxiway F shall use caution while turning, at F
  intersection, in order to avoid jet blast exposure of people, vehicles and stored cargo. ATC
  shall be aware of Heavy jet aircraft when vacating the RWY and use caution with the jet blast
  for other aircraft landing or departing
  Pilots should be aware that the taxiways and aprons are used for pedestrian and vehicle traffic
  as well and not all vehicles are under the control of the ATC tower.
  Helicopter may never overfly taxiing aircraft at an altitude lower than 500`AGL
  The use of taxiways and aprons by pedestrian and vehicles constitutes a larger hazard to
  ground operations than most other airports. In addition to applying pilot judgment and common
  sense, taxiing speed should be kept to maximum 15 Kts order to avoid incidents
  No high power engine test is approved on aprons. If engine run higher than idle power is
  necessary aircrew shall request taxi to an applicable taxiway or holding point.



  4.2.       Passenger Drop-off / Pick-up procedures
  Aircraft/helicopters for passenger drop-off/pick-up are not allowed to stay on Apron 2 and 8
  (ISAF ramp) with running engines longer than 15 minutes. If the operation cannot be
  completed within this period of time, the aircrew shall shut down the engines. When parking
  time is estimated to be more than 15 minutes, the pilot shall inform ATC and park in
  accordance with Follow-Me instructions.
